ABOUT THE IAP COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE

Our Vision

To be the Global Premier Platform where IAPs contribute to the advancement of the practice of airport management through interdisciplinary networking and developing best practices of Airport Business for the benefit of the Aviation Industry.

Our Mission

To foster a network to share global best practices and knowledge that enhances the strategic, systems perspective of airport leaders.

The IAP Community of practice offers AMPAP participants, graduates, instructors and other AMPAP stakeholders an ‘active and live’ space for airport professionals to network, collaborate and share experiences, best practices and opinions among world-class experts.

The platform provides a ‘full service’ forum to provide participants with access to industry perspectives and expertise beyond that of their local peers.

It is the “meeting point” for individuals who share:

  • common matters of interest or concerns;
  • similar problems or issues;
  • a passion for a certain subject and;
  • a desire to augment and strengthen their knowledge and expertise via interaction with the other individuals in their community.

As a result, IAP CoP participants are not only advancing their own knowledge and networking capabilities, but they are creating opportunities to enhance the practice and profession of airport management on a global level.
